Pattaya, the 11th of March 2010 [Pattaya Daily News]: From the Ambassador City Hotel Pattaya, Army Lieutenant, Thaveechai Liengphiboon (Director of the World Art of Defense) and Mr. Robert “Sifu” McInnes (Pattaya SWAT Commander and Martial Arts Expert) announced to the gathered media that the World Kumite Championships 2010 was to be staged in Pattaya. The intention is to spread the popular form of martial art to Pattaya’s local and visiting tourist population.

Mr. McInnes revealed that Kumite was an internationally certified form of self-defense taught in Thailand through authorization by the Ministry for Education since 2003. Kumite is also an established martial art form in Japan, China and many other countries outside of Asia.

Thailand obtained authorization to host the 2010 Kumite Championships following the world body’s acceptance that the required specialists and event organizers were present in the Kingdom. Further agreeing, Thailand is a prime destination to encourage the continued promotion of the sport due to the tourism industries influence.

Mr. McInnes was appearing at the promotional event having recently been arrested after a warrant was issued for a series of gun and explosive related charges. Mr. McInnes was granted bail of 100,000 baht which he subsequently posted and as such continued in a strictly promotional role for the World Kumite Championship event organizers.
